THE WELL, your one-stop shop for wellness, and Chileno Bay Resort & Residences, Auberge Resorts Collection, the award-winning contemporary, oceanfront resort in Los Cabos, announce the highly anticipated opening of THE WELL at Chileno Bay on January 18, 2023 on the shores of the Sea of Cortés. With the announcement of the first West Coast and second international location for THE WELL, the leading wellness brand continues to increase its global footprint through its partnership with renowned hotel group Auberge Resorts Collection. THE WELL brings its personalized approach to care to yet another one of the world’s most desirable destinations — addressing the physical, mental and spiritual aspects of well-being to help guests feel their best, well beyond their stay.
“For many, Chileno Bay represents a free-spirited playground that’s perfectly balanced by the calming nature of the wild elements around us.” said Roger Ponce, regional vice president and general manager, Chileno Bay Resort & Residences, Auberge Resorts Collection. “This new partnership reinforces our commitment to enhancing this organic sense of communion with the world around us with a wellness program that is equal parts THE WELL and Chileno Bay. I am excited to bear witness to how the true originality of THE WELL at Chileno Bay will be a transformative experience for both our guests and Los Cabos as a destination.”
Inspired by the rich healing traditions of Baja California, THE WELL balances modern and ancient ways of living with cutting-edge, results-oriented experiences that harness the healing power of both science and nature. With thoughtful touches throughout the oceanside sanctuary, the energy of life at THE WELL at Chileno Bay flows like water and promotes relaxation, allowing guests to reconnect and recharge.
“THE WELL at Chileno Bay is so special and stands alone in the depth and diversity of wellness experiences it offers guests,” says Sarrah Hallock, COO and CoFounder of THE WELL. “Everything from the tranquil rooms to the incredibly nourishing and delicious food to the exclusive wellness treatments and services harness the innate magic and healing power of Cabo.”
Transformed by New York based interior designer Nina Gotlieb, THE WELL at Chileno Bay draws inspiration from the Baja’s natural wonders of the clear blue sea and sweeping desert canyons. Honoring the local Mexican heritage, this one-of-a-kind wellness respite offers East-meets-West treatments, unique immersive experiences, dedicated health coaching, a calendar of seasonal retreats, a robust Visiting Masters program curated with expert healers and daily Mindful Movement classes from Embody Yoga and Meditation to Water Spinning and COMPLETE — a signature class from THE WELL that blends strength training and yoga.
The Arrival, the welcome area of THE WELL, features two plush hanging beds wrapped in sheer ethereal linens. With the backdrop of a peaceful zen garden with lush plants and native flowers, guests will be able to take a moment to set an intention of where they want to go and release what no longer serves them — rooting themselves in the present with a tailored sensorial experience.
Every guest’s wellness journey begins at The Bath House where guests will use rituals and the senses to attune the mind, body and spirit. The smell of local herbs to clear the mind. The vibrations of the grounding sound bowl to attune the body and spirit at a cellular level. The touch of hot and cold experiences on the body to boost the lymphatic system and awaken the mind. The taste of fresh juices full of antioxidants to nourish the body. The sight of oneself in nature and placing on the path to whole-person healing. Guests will feel rebalanced and reinvigorated after The Attunement at The Bath House.
The full wellness experience ends at The Nap Garden & Reflexology Pool. Featuring a pebbled floor to stimulate the reflex points and calm the nervous system, the Reflexology Pool allows guests to activate their senses through a self-guided therapy to further promote relaxation. As the warm sunlight filters through the lush Bougainvillea, the deluxe cozy cabanas in The Nap Garden is the perfect spot to sip on refreshing beverages from the purifying menu and experience a self-guided nap for a restful afternoon.
SIGNATURE PROGRAMS, TREATMENTS & IMMERSIVE EXPERIENCES
Bringing its tailored approach to whole-person care, THE WELL at Chileno Bay will newly introduce THE WELL Reset, a four-day program designed by its Chief Medical Officer, Frank Lipman, MD to help jumpstart guests’ journey to better health. Available year-round and launching this summer, the program begins with a consultation with a dedicated health coach who will discuss guests’ wellness goals and preferences to help curate a personalized itinerary of custom treatments, movement programming and nutrition. Whether it’s balancing the blood sugar, enhancing detoxification or optimizing metabolic function, the results-driven program provides tools and practices to support each guest’s wellness journey during and after their stay.
THE WELL at Chileno Bay’s transformative treatment concepts marry ancient traditions with the latest scientific innovations. One of THE WELL signature treatments is The Method, a five-step advanced bodywork method that helps build a healthy body for better range of motion, increased energy, healthful aging and improved skin complexion.
In harmony with the surrounding natural landscape, THE WELL at Chileno Bay further delivers immersive experiences for an unforgettable sensation that is unlike any other. One of the signature offerings is Celestial Bathing, a spiritual therapy that layers ancient traditions with modern techniques. Guests will begin with a candlelit evening ritual, then float in the serene outdoor pool looking up at the moon and stars for a sensory biodynamic water treatment.
THE WELL at Chileno Bay has curated nine new wellness rooms, including one suite to make wellness part of one’s entire stay, featuring specialized in-room wellness essentials, well-being amenities and daily access to THE WELL. Reflecting the resort’s open-air aesthetic, the spacious rooms frame views of the ocean and tropical gardens through private terraces and floor-to-ceiling windows for idyllic Baja-style, indoor-outdoor living.
Guests’ in-room experience is elevated through a curated menu of wellness items thoughtfully placed throughout — from a light therapy mask and exfoliating mitt to affirmation cards and foot massage rollers.
With THE WELL and Auberge Resorts Collection’s partnership, guests’ sleep health is further optimized with the Better Sleep program, where they can tap into curated content, expert tips and tools developed in collaboration with Dr. Frank Lipman while pairing with the calming lavender scent of the exclusive 1 oz size of THE WELL Relax Everything Mist.
The wellness rooms and suite also feature an Eight Sleep Pod 3 Cover to enhance guests’ sleep and recovery. Through thermoregulation, Eight Sleep’s cutting-edge technology will maintain the optimal temperature for guests’ bodies while monitoring their holistic health to ensure they wake up recharged.
With the seamless integration of wellness in every moment of guests’ stay, THE WELL at Chileno Bay is the ultimate haven to live, breathe and experience wellness in the midst of coastal nature’s bounty.
